Good Character-Driven Entry
10 April 2014 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Good character tale with a particularly fine performance from George Kennedy on whom the 30-minutes turns. Nice guy, blacksmith Emil (Kennedy) sends away for German-born wife. Trouble is hulking bad guy Tolman (Anderson) doesn't like Emil or foreigners like Emil. So he breaks up Emil's wedding, after which the equally hulking Emil throws him into a water trough. Now there's going to be real trouble.

Great byplay between Doc and Chester, again showing why these touches helped lift the series into classic category. Kennedy manages a convincing German accent that helps give the entry an authentic feel. The brawl, however, is pretty much by the numbers and not very convincing. Still, the episode features three of the biggest men in Hollywood, counting Arness. Anyway, it's easy to see how Kennedy went on to feature films after his stellar turn here.
